In this week's match for the Whyte and Mackay Scotch Trophy, Tony Jacklin and Gary Player are joined by two popular stars from very different backgrounds.

A New Girl
For Zoe [text removed] , it's the hardest decision she's ever had to make. During her pregnancy she took an anti-morning sickness drug. Her daughter Sharon was born with a skull deformity - there's no proof that the drug caused it, but Zoe has always felt responsible and guilty.
Now there's the chance of an operation at Great Ormond
Street which could transform Sharon's appearance, and offer this bright 8-year-old the possibility of a normal life. But it could also go wrong, and condemn her forever to awkwardness with her friends and cruel stares from strangers. Should Zoe take the risk?
This film follows mother and daughter through the 18 months that will change their lives. Once Zoe decides, she experiences both heartache and joy.
Will Sharon fulfil her hopes, and become 'a new girl'? Photography ALEX HANSEN Film editor MARTIN SHARPE

Midland Bank World Indoor Pairs Championship
The second quarter-final is on the rink this evening and it is difficult to assess who will be the contestants. Welshmen TERRY SULLIVAN and DAVID WILKINS will be many people's choice, but you cannot rule out the Irish pairing of jim BAKER and ROD MCCUTCHEON. No doubt RABKIN and BRANSKY (Israel), also CUTLER and BELL, will have a major say in who starts the session. DAVID ICKE introduces highlights of this evening's match from the Bournemouth International Centre.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
